Half Marathon Course

The Bellin Women’s Half Marathon is a beautiful urban loop course. The half marathon race can be completed as an individual or as a 2-person relay team, with each person running approximately half of the 13.1-mile distance.

Our half marathon course begins on Elm Street outside the KI Convention Center in downtown Green Bay, taking participants across the Fox River, south through the Broadway shopping district, through a short industrial section to the tree-lined boulevards of Ashwaubenon and De Pere. The halfway point (6.5 miles) on Fifth Street in De Pere will offer beverages and a relay handoff area. From there, participants will take a short jaunt through the St. Norbert College area before crossing the Claude Allouez Bridge in De Pere and jumping onto the Fox River Trail. Runners will follow the scenic Fox River Trail north, finishing in the heart of downtown on Green Bay’s landmark CityDeck.

This is a fun, flat, beautiful course that’s spectator friendly from start to finish.
